This short course is a progression from the Forest Confidence course. You will revise and refresh skills learned on Forest Confidence, with the addition of exploring the theory of fire, fire safety and learn how to light a contained fire. Risk assessment will also be covered in this course, as safety is a key concept in Forest courses.
